So he's blaming Amazon for this. I'm appalled by his reaction - even though it's a typical Elvis one :D

Re: LOOK NOW on 8 7" 45's box set ' will not be available on the release date of March 1st, 2019'

Someone suggested that the holes in the artwork to show the record's label are the 'missprint'' that's holding up everything? Seeing it 'in the (virtual) flesh', with a reproduction of the CD booklet, I'm very much inclined to go and cancel my order with the website. After Paul McCartney's big box o...

Re: LOOK NOW on 8 7" 45's box set coming 2/22

I'd buy the super super superdeluxe edition (I enjoy paraphernalia, especially when they're signed), but I fear the import duties on that for delivery to the UK would knock me sideways ... :(

Re: Look Now: new album announced!

I thought *I* was the Invisible Man. But I suppose we didn't see each other before. Anyway, the album is growing. It doesn't exactly work like a McCartney album, which is relatively simpler(*) and straightforward. Now many of the melodies are stuck in my head. (*) although you can find articulated ...

In my (indirect) experience of cancer, words like "defeated by a single surgery", and "recommend[ed] three weeks to four weeks recovery", certainly need to by qualified by a certain passage of time before they can be deemed as facts ... :( But like others have said, I'm not a doc...

Re: Paul McCartney: Flowers In The Dirt Archive Collection

Not so easy to disentangle these voices!

McCartney low in verse and high in middle bits; EC high in verse and low in middle bits I think.
Twenty-Five fingers' chorus is more tahn just two. In fact, I think they doubletracked both their vocals here and there?

Re: Least favourite lyric

Well, I like these recent albums, but I found his lyrics on Secret, Profane and Sugarcane left me cold. They scan badly (but don't all Costello lyrics do, and that's normally why I love them :) ), sound pompous, don't hang together, and with their ultra-american frame of reference have no relevance ...
